For current betas, use Osiris. Search for the company you want. Under Stock data go to Security & Price Information and scroll down to betas.
For current industry betas try Betas by Sector created by Aswath Damodaran at NYU.
Bloomberg (located in Lippincott Library or in Huntsman Hall) has current and historical betas. Type the ticker symbol, hit EQUITY, type beta and hit GO.
Use WRDS Beta Suite, a flexible tool that allows you to calculate beta based on daily, weekly or monthly return frequencies.
For annual betas, use CRSP via WRDS. Select Annual Update-->Stock/Portfolio Assignment-->Beta Deciles. Betas are available back to 1962.
Also try Value Line Research Center
Betas date back to April 1973 in Value Line in print. Use the Value Line Summary and Index. HG4501 V26 in the Lippincott Library Peck Collection. The printed Index to ValueLine stops in 1979.
